Why Snowboarding is an Awesome Sport by Vaios

Snowboard is a winter sport that I think you would all like. I personally have been snowboarding, for more than two years. I like this sport because it is totally cool, full of excitement and risk. If you are going to snowboard for the first time you might feel a bit scared but at the same time you will feel the passion on the board! After a few lessons you will feel the energy and you will want to go faster and faster. When you feel ready you can jump over small cliffs and if you are a pro you can do flips.

Helpful Snowboarding Tips

Let me give you some tips incase you want to try snowboarding.  First you need to have the weight on your “bad” foot, the one which is not as strong as the other one. Then you need to put your foot in the front of the board. After that, you try to have balance. If any of you have done wakeboard, skateboard or rip stick remember that the skills you already have will help you on the snowboard because all of them need the same balance. The direction of the board needs to be facing front and then you let yourself go down the hill. When you want to stop you turn your body vertically, but remember push your heel back and down and your toes up. Be careful to not push your toes front and down and your heel up because you will fall facing down immediately. Moreover, there is another way to stop. You need to turn around vertically so you look up to the hill and you do the exact opposite thing.

In order for you to go snowboarding you need the right equipment. You need to go to a ski or snowboard rental store so you buy or rent your equipment. First you need to buy the most important thing, your helmet because it protects you from all your falls.

This photo shows a very good helmet. Also you need to buy thermals; warm clothes and gloves. Be careful what you choose as you need to be warm all the time due to the cold weather in the mountain.

You need to rent or buy a snowboard. There are numerous kinds of snowboards you can rent or buy. If you buy you select your own.

Check these cool boards out:

You cannot do snowboard without having boots, so you will rent or buy boots as well. They are tall and heavy and protect your foot from getting injured.

I challenge and invite you to explore the fun of snowboarding because we can all have fun together on the mountains. Eventually, when we are teenagers, we will be able to go snowboarding on our own. Just like these guys:

  3. Dear Vaios,
    I really LOVED your essay about snowboarding. Tommorow I’m going to ski around Delphi. My brother and I wanted to snowboard too. I think this is great information about snowboarding and I think I can teach my brother by all your explanations. I also really liked that you didn’t list and it wasn’t boring beacause some of the explanations other snowboard teachers give are really boring. Awesome Essay!!!!!

    I really liked your report and I liked your tips too.
    You did a great job with the pictures. It was nice you added the challenge at the
    end too. I like the fact you said it’s a risky sport, and I’m positively sure it is.
